Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
An exciting opportunity to purchase an highly attractive residential property in the heart of Faringdon, currently split into two separate dwellings. The property could, however, easily be converted into one entity, subject to consent, with the added advantage of being under one title already.

Chase House is a highly attractive detached residence, which resides under one title comprises of 49 and 51 Gravel Walk respectively.

Situated within a conservation area, in the heart of Faringdon, these properties have a wealth of history, with 49 believed to be dating back to the 17th century, with a Grade II listing, and is understood to have formerly been an old coaching inn, whilst 51, which is situated on the right of the property, was more recently a motor parts shop and was converted and modernised in 2014.

49 Gravel Walk, to the left flank of the property, benefits from off-street parking to the immediate front of the property. The property is in need of extensive refurbishment, with the ground floor accommodation offering a spacious sitting room with a stunning ornamental fireplace and fitted gas fire, a separate kitchen/dining room with exposed beams, and a connecting bathroom.

On the first floor is a large master bedroom, a second bedroom with exposed beams and original fireplace, and a further bedroom with fitted wardrobes. There is a good-sized family bathroom which is in need of a full refurbishment.

51 Gravel Walk has been attractively modernised and extended to a high standard, offering a spacious and well-fitted kitchen/dining room, with integral appliances and stairs rising to the first floor.

The adjoining sitting room is generously proportioned with an original fireplace with a fitted gas-effect fire. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a modern cloakroom fitted with a white suite.

To the first floor are two generous double bedrooms, both of which have walk-in wardrobes, and a stylish fitted family bathroom.

The two properties are retained under one title, and could easily be made into one substantial family home by reconfiguring the ground floor accommodation, creating a lovely open-plan family kitchen/dining room, with an adjacent cloakroom and utility if required.

Externally, subject to consent, the frontage could be re-landscaped to create a private walled front garden and off-street parking for two vehicles., and up to at least four vehicles, in its current format

Please note: No.51 could potentially be converted back to a retail unit, if required, subject to the usual consents.
